9.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

17.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

18.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

19.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

Robert Orben

23.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

24.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

25.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

26.

Anna Quindlen

27.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

28.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

W. Somerset Maugham

33.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

34.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

35.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

36.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

38.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

39.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

40.

Greer, Germaine

49.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

50.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray
